7:01 am
adds another gold to his record tally. >> number 19. >> and team usa dominating on the bars and the beam. >> the best i've seen her do it. >> now simone biles leading the charge for dmror ray. >> hi, i'm simone biles, good morning, america. >> can she become the first woman ever to win five gold medals at a single olympics? we're live in rio for all the action. and good morning, america. hope hyou had a good weekend. what a start for the americans. >> team usa taking home two gold medals. amy with the latest from the olympics including the moment everybody is talking about, this swimmer making quite a statement about the russian doping scandal. >> yeah, a lot to get into. but first that breaking news, delta flights grounded worldwide overnight. some frustrated travelers sharing these photos of some long lines right now and delta
7:02 am
right there, that the delays are due to a global computer outage. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: the latest and the long line, george. tens of thousands of passengers are being affected. here's just one line national airport, reagan national airport. the line here, no delta jets are taking off. this computer outage started overnight. it is continuing at this hour. if a delta jet is in the air it will continue and land but ground. there was a passenger in sacramento who sent us an audio file of the pilot explaining what happened overnight. >> back in our operations control center in atlanta, a huge room, the center of the whole operation, their computers are down and if you've been trying to call and get rebooked or call the diamond desk or anything, it looks like everybody is in the same boat. >> reporter: delta says in a statement a computer outage has
7:03 am
their flights this morning while the issue is being addressed. but there is no solution so far. delta now joins the other major carriers that have been hit by computer shutdowns. a year ago united had nearly 5,000 flights affected. just last month southwest canceled 2300 flights. this looks like it could be a lot worse, george. it is morning, it is rush, it is monday and no delta jets are taking off around the globe. >> yeah, and, david, i think most of us assume there's some kind of failsafe every flight all over the world. how could that be? >> reporter: yeah, delta is not being specific exactly what happened with their computer system but all this information is critical to pilots. they need to know weather data, how many people they're carrying, dispatchers have to know weights. all these things are reliant on computers. a system goes down, you're not flying. >> ripple effects everywhere. david kerley, thanks very much. we turn to that tragic accident at a popular water
7:04 am
tallest water slide in the world. the park closed this morning as investigators try to determine what went wrong. abc's alex perez is in kansas city with the latest. good morning, to you, alex. >> reporter: good morning, lara. it was a beautiful day here at the park. packed with families when something went terribly wrong. this morning, authorities investigating what went tragically wrong at this popular kansas city water park. >> the mother was screaming, he's not moving. that's my the 10-year-old son of kansas state representative scott schwab died while riding what's known as the tallest water slide in the world here at the schlitterbahn water park. schwab telling abc news overnight since the day caleb was born he brought abundant joy to our family. we are comforted knowing he believed in our savior jesus and they are forever together now. we will see him another day. >> it still brought tears to my eyes that someone else lost
7:05 am
safe. >> reporter: this morning while the city grieves investigators are remaining tight-lipped not releasing any details of what happened sunday at the kansas park. >> our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. >> reporter: this is what the ride called verruckt german for insane looks like from the top standing at 168 feet high it's taller than the statue of liberty and plummets its thrill seekers a jaw-dropping 17 stories in tubers hitting speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour. commercials for the ride even asking the question -- >> are you insane? >> reporter: the slide requires a minimum inches of 53 inches and two to three riders have to be in a raft with a total weight of at least 400 pounds. sliders had to be at least 14 when the ride opened. that has since changed but before it opened many raised questions about its safety.
7:06 am
sandbag dummies flying off the slide. the ride's opening delayed at least three times while the park reworked it adding seat belts and safety netting. >> quite possibly this incident is not going to be a result of a mechanical issue, more possibly a result of an human error. >> reporter: and the park will be closed today as a team of investigators works to figure out what exactly what went wrong here. >> thanks, ceo of the national safety council, deborah hersman. thanks for joining us. so many question raised by this accident. the company had taken many steps to put in safety measures before the ride opened. but what kind of questions are you asking right now? what's on top of your mind? >> you know, i think first really is to let that investigation play out. it's good that they've closed the park but we really want to understand what happened here and giving officials the time
7:07 am
properly will give us a lot more answers. >> they added seat belts. they added safety netting. they had weight requirements. so is this more likely human error? >> you know, i think it's really too early to tell. we really don't know what happened. very tragic event here. people come to parks, water parks, amusement parks hoping to have fun but they certainly expect a safe ride so we want to make sure whenever everyone goes to a park that they do restrictions, that they don't try to loosen up the restraints and definitely if you're going to a water park make sure you know how to swim. >> have we had many problems with water park as cross the country? >> you know, the good news is we don't see fatalities. they're so rare but we do see injury, but they're also very infrequent. we know that some of the places that can be really dangerous in summertime are around water so
7:08 am
how to swim, parents, you want to make sure that you've got a close eye, close hand on your children. we see some injuries occur in pools every year and we see people die because of drowning. but certainly some serious injuries can occur on places like slides and so whether humans are involved or whether it's equipment, you really want to be careful. we see head, neck and back injuries on slides. >> this ride was called insane. are parkpe >> you know, i think, you know, the question really is, is the ride safe? and if the ride is safe, we want to make sure that everyone who rides the ride is safe. and so taking the precautions that we need, if there are changes that need to be made i'm sure this park will be looking closely at that. but ultimate there's also some responsibility for local and state authorities to take a look at it, as well as the manufacturers to ensure that
7:09 am
>> okay, deborah hersman, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. so lots of questions to be answered but, boy, our hearts go out to that family. >> absolutely. so important to think about those things she said. we move on now to the race for the white house and donald trump struggling to get back on track after a tough poll number. our new poll shows hillary clinton with an eight-point lead as trump steps up his attack. abc's tom llamas tracking it all for us. good morning, tom. >> reporter: lara, george, good morning to you. donald trump h will be showcasing different economic plans this week as trump is using clinton's own words against her. this morning, as some wonder if trump's campaign is coming unhinged, the republican nominee lobbing that same attack on hillary clinton. >> she is a totally unhinged person. she's unbalanced. honestly, i don't think she's all there. >> reporter: trump seizing on this statement clinton made about her truthfulness
7:10 am
that and for that i, you know, will try to clarify. >> reporter: the trump campaign posting this on social media portraying clchts as a robot. >> i may have short-circuited it. >> reporter: and trump having a field day with that short-circuit comment. >> she took a short-circuit in the brain and she's got problems. i mean, if we had real people, this would be a real problem for her. but i this country don't want somebody that is going to short-circuit up here. okay. not as your president. >> reporter: trump's new attacks come on the heels of new polls that show him in a summer slump. our abc news/"washington post" poll showing many voters worried about trump. two-thirds say he has the wrong temperament. almost as many say he's unqualified and untrustworthy.
7:11 am
regards to trump's relationship with russian leader vladimir putin. >> for mr. trump's perspective, right, he simply heard putin compliment him. he then responded by complimenting him. he never thought that he might be being played. >> reporter: trump firing back on twitter calling morell, a man who has made some serious bad calls and a total clinton flunky. and today in detroit trump will unveil his economic pl here are some highlights. trumps want to repeal and replace obamacare and limit taxation of business, all businesses to 15% and stop all payments using tax dollars to the u.n. global warming programs and also exclude child care expenses from taxation. now, the clinton campaign is already calling this tru trumponomics saying if he wins, you lose. >> thanks very much. let's bring it to matt dowd.
7:12 am
today, an economic speech, biggest issue focused on jobs and trying to consolidate republicans with a lot of ideas that have been republican orthodoxy for a long time. >> yeah, i mean i think he's much better arguing on the ground of the economic situation in the country today instead of this argument around the short-circuited situation. if i were donald trump i would not get into an argument about mental stability. it's not a ground i think is very good for him in in this speech he has to do the equivalent of jim furyk's 58 yesterday which was an amazing situation set the all-time record, in order to break this pattern, he's going to have to hit it out of the park. >> out of the park and one speech alone isn't going to do it. the question is can he stay on message for a consistent series of days and weeks? at the same time, you're saying, you know, as we look at our poll. there is an eight-point lead for hillary clinton in our a
7:13 am
race. you think over time those -- the green party candidate and gary johnson, the libertarian candidate can have an impact. >> yeah, i think unlike years past, you know, where the third or fourth party dwindle as they get closer to election day i actually think they're going to rise as we get closer to election day. i think because of the dissatisfaction as we see in the abc poll with both major party candidates and the fact they're both unliked and distrusted means there's an opportunity for jill stein to grow their support. the question, george, is can they get enough support to get in that debate, that first debate in september? i think it's unlikely but that's really the threshold they need to beat which is 15%. >> it worked for ross perot back in 199. finally, hillary clinton stepped in it again over the weekend with those new comments about the e-mail server. how does she hold on, consolidate the lead she now has? >> don't go on the air. i think the best thing that she
7:14 am
media landscape which he's consistently done and consistently made mistakes and as she's disappeared her poll numbers rise and that is pretty consistent over the last eight years. as she goes off the media platform her numbers rise so if i were her cede to donald trump and let him do what he's doing. >> go to the states. local media strategy, matt dowd, thanks very much. >> never a dull moment. same thing in rio where america's olympians are hitting their stride taking home two gold medals slowing down. amy is live in rio with all the latest. good morning, amy. >> hey, good morning, lara. and george, team usa going for gold and breaking records along the way with incredible performances in the pool and on the balance beam and this is the best part, they're just getting started. >> the united states will win gold. >> reporter: the u.s. men's swim team struck gold sunday night, michael phelps, the most
7:15 am
team to victory in the men's 4x100 freestyle relay. with this win phelps has now everyoned his 19th gold medal and 23rd overall medal in the olympic games. phelps' teammate ryan held overcome with emotion on the podium. the olympic veteran no stranger to hearing "the star-spangled banner" put a comforting arm around the gold medal newbie and shining bright 19-year-old american k gold in the 400-meter freestyle crushing her competition. >> canidate ledecky smashes her own record. >> reporter: favored to win broke breaking the world record and beating her closest competitor by five seconds. only 15 when she won gold at the london games now being called the female phelps. other american stars also making waves include four-time gold

7:17 am
track to add to her collection. >> all right and a big moment in the pool, take a look at russian swimmer yulia efimova. take a look at u.s. swimmer lily king's reaction as she beat her time and calling out yulia for being caught occupy in the russian drug cheating scandal. a lot wonder why she's been allowed to compete. but guess what, it is on and the competition is fierce. guys. >> oh, i cannot stop watching, amy. you are so lucky to be there. great job. want to get to jesse palmer now with a look at where things stand in the olympic medal count. give it to us. >> i can't stop watching either. heading into day three at the rio olympics and today some real opportunity force the u.s. to bring home even more medals including, of course, gold. right now america's in the lead with 12 medals including three goal, five silver rounding out
7:18 am
italy and japan right now tied with seven apiece. but big day today, all eyes on michael phelps as he competes in his first individual competition. we saw him, of course, add to his record medal tally last night with a win in the team relay but you're also going to want to keep an eye out for the u.s. men's gymnastic team, the final today looking to do what they could not do in 2012 in london and that is bring home a medal. lara, george. >> thank you. no another wildfire in the west. >> just east of l.a. want to show you this video. it's called the pilot file 1500 acres burned eight tankers on this brought in the big jets and not much in the way of contain. gusty winds across the l.a. basin and red flag warnings for the intermountain west and more dry lightning and wish they had this across northern parts of florida. flood watches and rainy week for

sunday. the incomparable simone biles leading that charge in the search for a second straight u.s. team gold coming up we'll talk to former olympian and member of the gold winning 1996 team dominique dawes. so much more from rio but we'll send it back to you, lara. looking forward to that. we want to start with the latest on that murder mystery here in new york. the family of 30-year-old jogger killed while running last week now speaking out. her mother blasting the killer who is still on the loose. abc's linsey davis joins us now from queens with more on the investigation. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, lara. just one day after laying their 30-year-old daughter karina to rest both parents spoke publicly but the mother had some especially blistering words to stress her point she started off by taking off her sunglasses and telling everyone to look in her eyes as she could address the man directly that she called a coward.
7:32 am
forever. >> reporter: a mother's unbridled pain and anguish on full display. >> soon we're going to have a face to the piece of garbage that you are. >> reporter: on sunday afternoon kathy vetrano shared this -- >> the whole entire world knows what a pathetic, piece of filth you are. >> reporter: these words are the first we've heard from vetrano's family since the 30-year-old was found dead less than a week ago. her body discovered just 15 feet away from a trail that she and her father ran nearly every day but back pain forced him to stay at home the afternoon she was killed. the retired firefighter now has a message of his own for the attacker. >> justice will be served.
7:33 am
and headphones near the crime scene and sent them in for testing in the hopes of finding fingerprints or dna evidence, meanwhile, vetrano's devastated parents laid their daughter to rest saturday. her casket was met with salutes as hundreds gathered for the funeral. even actor donnie wahlberg took a moment to remember her writing on twitter i've met thousands of amazing new yorkers while filming "blue bloods." none were as kind as karina vetrano. so many people attended saturday's funeral service so they had to set up speakers outside where people were standing. anyone with information will now get a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. lara. >> linsey, thank you very much. joining us senior legal analyst sunny hostin. sunny, obviously family so angry. does this help or hurt the investigation. >> there is no question it helps
7:34 am
department, this energizes the community. this is a plea for justice. this is a plea for help so we may get more tips being called in. i think everyone that saw that really related to that family and thought i want justice for karina too and that's why people do these press conferences. they want people to feel their private grief publicly. sort of a call to action. >> you could not watch that and have your hearts -- i mean, just break for karina's mother, for the entire what's next in the investigation? >> well, they don't have many leads but we know there may be some dna evidence and they're testing that now. remember, this was a particularly gruesome, gruesome crime. we're talking about someone that was dragged off of a jogging path, possibly sexually assaulted. her teeth were broken, scrapes to her leg. talking about something, very, very gruesome so my sense is because of that press conference perhaps we'll be getting in many more tips.
7:35 am
hit that would be helpful because someone that commits a crime like this, this is not the first time. so let's hope this is someone that may be in a dna database. >> her mother and father said karina was such a fighter and she fought so there might be a lead right there. >> there might be. i also want to mention this, looking forward to a possible trial, this kind of press conference helps because every potential juror, you would imagine, now knows about this case, has seen this p for the family. so this is the very beginning of a long process for this family but hopefully justice for karina. >> absolutely. hopefully justice for karina, sunny, thank you so much. >> o. thank you. we move on to new trouble for oscar pistorius. the former paralympic champ rushed to the hospital after injuring his wrists in prison where he is serving sometime for his girlfriend's murder and lama hasan has the latest. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning to
7:36 am
from what are being described as minor wounds to his wrists. so what happened to pistorius? according to him it was an accident. he fell in his jail cell and injured himself threw there are some who believe he may have been trying to take his own life. one of the most famous former olympians in the world, oscar pistorius is fighting back denying claims he was trying to commit suicide. saying he had fallen after losing his balance o and slipping in his jail cell but the south african media are running a different story suggesting it was a suicide attempt that he was bleeding heavily claiming there were razor blades found in his cell after the incident. with reports of an inmate describing his wounds as, quote, definitely self-inflicted. his brother karl categorically denying these tweeting i know that there are reports saying that he tried to injure himself, they are completely untrue and
7:37 am
news stories are also baseless. he slipped in his cell and injured himself, nothing serious. and the hospital he was treated at releasing this short statement, "the kgosi in. amp ampuruii correctional centre treated him but further sent him to kalafong hospital for treatment. he is behind bars serving six years for murdering his girlfriend reeva steenkamp. prosecution saying it will appeal again arguing the sentence was, quote, shockingly lenient. while oscar's brother hammering home it was just an accident and nothing more urging people not to believe those media reports saying he himself went to see his brother in his cell sunday saying he was doing well and in good spirits. george. >> okay, lama, thanks very much. now over to lara. >> thank you, george. coming up on the big board,
7:38 am
why wasn't it caught on the officer's body camera. and a-rod says good-bye. the yankee slugger announcing his retirement. the question is was he forced to quit. renee zellweger addressing speculation about her appearance. we'll talk about it all coming up on our big board in two minutes. ? ? starbucks? small-batch cold brew coffee. in stores now. strike! sfx: "boop" ? complete pair of eyeglasses,

when people ask me what it's like to win an olympic medal, i tell them, "you already know." the medals you've earned are all around you. your bronze. your gold. and liberty mutual insures them all. liberty mutual is proud to insure every team usa medal won in rio, just like we protect the medals you've earned in life. liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance.
7:40 am
with simply right checking from santander bank, just make one deposit, withdrawal, transfer or payment each month to waive the monthly fee. and there's no minimum balance. you're alright... with simply right checking from santander bank. ? are you feeling alright, baby? ? welcome back. time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by for live on this morning's top stories. sunny hostin our senior legal analyst is back and this comes out of chicago. this controversial police shooting, they released nine videos of the shooting. but one crucial video is missing, that was on the officer who was on the scene. apparently it was not turned on. that's what the police are saying right now but that has led to some to charge a cover-up. >> that's right and everybody is talking about a cover-up because nine videos released. some from dash cam but the most important would have been the
7:41 am
raf the officer that fatally shot paul o'neal in the back and so this was supposed to be sort an air of transparency for the chicago police department plagued by charges of racism and now you have this pilot program with body cameras that should have been very helpful but now it doesn't seem like it's that helpful because a lot of the behavior, quite frankly, that was caught is very shocking, very disturbing. you see officers cursing at you see officers high-fiving after the shooting and you also see officers, quite frankly, pointing to the body cameras and telling the other officers to turn them off. this has led not to the transparency into the good feelings in the community but, in fact to more distrust between the trust and the african-american community. >> right. quite the opposite so based on what you just said what those tapes have shown, could the officers involved in the shooting be charged criminally.
7:42 am
and it's clear it's against department policy to shoot at a car that's going away from the police, 15 shots were at the car and i think it's also important to notice that -- note that he was shot in the back and the supreme court has held that generally you can't shoot a fleeing felon in the back. so looking at all of that, it is possible that we could see criminal charges stemming from this case. >> yeah, we'll follow this. sunny, thank you very much. >> you bet. got to move on to a major league re crying during his press conference, tearfully announcing he will play his last game on friday. take a look. >> i love this game. and i love this team. and today i'm saying good-bye to both. i never thought i could play for 22 years. at 18 i just wanted to make the
7:43 am
>> so a lot of questions given that he's so upset. was this his decision? we have t.j. holmes with us. good morning, teej. what do you make of sort of abrupt midseason retirement? >> well, it's what we've come to expect from alex rodriguez, right. in his career, nothing is ever simple and it's not this time at all either. now, we can call this a retirement. but or you can he was going to be released. that might be the truth essentially trying to move another direction and get younger, they want to get better and look too the future. when you have a 41-year-old on your books making 20 plus million a year who's batti batting .200 he is not in the plan so they were probably going to release him at the end of this season anyway. but that wouldn't have been very ceremonious and just would have parted ways but this way they brought an offer to him and said, we'll let you do this and keep your salary, and even the salary you're owed next season and you can stay on as an
7:44 am

happy to stay we're back with hugh grant. no stranger to strong leading ladies like julia robert, renee zellweger. now starring opposite meryl streep in the film "florence foster jenkins." this is based on a it meryl play's the world's famous not great singer. hugh is her incredibly loyal husband and manager and in this clip he's sharing a review very carefully. >> the consensus was she'd never sung better. her grace and brilliant personality only added to the remarkable quality of her voice. by the end of her performance the stage was -- a bow of blue
8:42 am
>> bravo. bravissimo. >> steven ferrer directed this film which i could not believe is based 0en a true story. will you share with us a little about who florence is? >> well, yes, she was a millionai millionairess heiress in the 1940s. the film takes place in the '40s when she was in her 70s and ran the classical life of the . felt that she could sing and she wasn't just bad, she was so hilariously bad that she could fill kacarnegie hall and things like that and never knew people were coming to laugh at her and was protected of the knowledge of that by me her husband and group around her. >> your character, so wildly loyal that he will go to any length to protect his wife and make sure that she doesn't know
8:43 am
>> that's right, yes. >> what drew you to that character? >> well, the whole concept of the film i think was fascinating, this awful singer and sort of whole idea of delusion, but my character was rather interesting. he's extremely loving and loyal, protective but nuanced and complex is what he's got other tough going on and you ask yourself in the film or at least for a lot of the film you're asking yourself does he really love this or money because she's so rich for his own career really. but hopefully in the end people realize this is real love. >> there is a real love story and it's not what you think. it is -- there are -- weird twists and turns in this elegant tale. >> yes, it's difficult to talk about them without ruining the film in yes, i shant. i feel like i have to say shant because you're so elegant. what was it like working with meryl streep and especially in this character.
8:44 am
reason for doing the film because i don't do many films anymore. you know, i've sort of moved on a built but when this came up with such a great script and steven and meryl streep clearly i had to do it. and i was terrified of her with her 19 oscar nominations, but actually she was delightful. >> did she do any -- >> raised my game. >> did she notice you were nervous, any excng early days of table reads? >> she pretended she was, as well. i used to ask her every day, meryl, are you nervous for the first week, yes, yes, i'm nervous. after two weeks she said, no, i'm not nervous anymore. >> how in the world did she find that voice, because florence is, you know, makes it to carnegie hall and fills it but it's cringe worthy singing. >> it's -- she is an actress of genius.
8:45 am
singer so she learned to sing all these famous and very difficult -- >> it had to be hard for meryl to be bad at something. perfectly bad. >> she learned them all perfectly then messed them up. >> it's been said that you may -- you just alluded to it. you might retire from films altogether in well, i had moved on slightly. i was doing other stuff in life. very involved with various political things in britain but occasionally it's lovely to dip my toe >> will you please come back to lake showbiz again. >> i'll have a towel waiting for you. >> hugh grant, thank you for coming. it's a pleasure to meet you and i'm excited. you'll love the film. it's called "florence foster jenkins" and hits theaters this friday. coming up, you better stay with us. it gets a little crazy. the "gma" games with dan + shay
